Forum restored

Recommended Posts

So the good news, Forum is up and running.

 

We rolled back to Saturday morning so we might be missing some posts.

For the tech savvy among us.

Saturday evening around 23:00 CET an issue occurred with the data storage unit of this server.
Once restored the server no longer came back online and seemed to be missing critical boot files.

After spending some time to restore it we found most data to be beyond saving and had to revert to a backup file.

 

It goes to show kids, ALWAYS RUN OFFSITE BACKUPS!

Wait, why weren't the critical boot files there if this is backupped?

I am more interested in why they get corrupted in the first place. beyond that say you have copies of boot records, the process to write those back into place is tedious, might as well pop in a new disk and reinstall

I used to store my guides in .txt files on my PC, but recently I've abandoned that idea. Just in time, huh. :D

Oh well, I guess, I'll have to re-write a thing or two. :/

 

At least the Forum is back. :)

Backup everything. Then make backups of the backup. And backup that too. With some more backups. Just in case.
